A foody (in my case that's a polite word for a foodaholic). I am exploring frugal living out of necessity but it's quite a fun adventure. I live alone so there's only the dog to witness my culinary mistakes.
I have Southern taste buds but love some Mexican spice.
My favorite things to cook
Southern, comfort food, quick and easy, one-skillet, and my best thing of all: Pizza!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother didn't buy junk food. Cookies, cake, candy, we learned to make it ourselves out of the big red and white Better Homes & Gardens cookbook.
My cooking triumphs
Pizza will always be my lifework, but it's very good, better than I ever thought I could make.
My cooking tragedies
Brownies! I can never get them out of the oven at the right time. I mostly burn them, but have undercooked, as well. I gave up long ago.
